latest harvest combines in Argentina

Enclosed find a modern combine, have you seen those working ???

They are extremelly quick, just 5 to 7 hectareas per day.

This contractor helps us this year at our northern farm.

 

At the top you can see some seat where the workers were sitting and closing the bags, letting them down for later collection on the field

 

i am 37 years old, first time to see them working but can imagine some old farmers had seen those before???

 

even this was really old, the harvest war fine and not much beans were falling

Re: latest harvest combines in Argentina

i think you can buy one of those old harvest machines for $ 5.000 to 10.000 (US american dollars).

in this case the machine was own by an small farmers (operates 300 hectareas) and may give services to neighboards on another 50 to 100 hectareas so in his case was OK and very profitable for him to handle this combine. he doesn't need more. he fix the machine himself with very cheap materials, etc....
